Video: NOM, NOM, NOM

by Jeremy Hooper

Some of you have heard this a few times already. But since The National Organization For Marriage is in the news so much this week, we went ahead and committed our rebutal to their recent radio ad to the YouTube realm:

Our response to NOM (National Org. For Marriage) radio ad [YT]

Your thoughts

Great response, however we need to re frame the debate away from sinners v bigots to something more pro active. There are many religious people who are FOR same-sex marriage. I am one of them. California Faith for Equality and the California Council of Churches filed a joint lawsuit to invalidate Prop 8. www.calchurches.org

We need to get the message out there that Christians are not your enemies nor are gays the enemies of Christians. I know Christians started it, but we need to reframe the debate or we'll never win on this issue.

Am I the only one who finds it hilarious that their acronym is the sound effect for eating in a comic?
Example:
Zombie: I'MA NOM YOUR HEAD!!! *nom nom nom*
Person: AIEEE, MY BRAIN!!!

. . . No, I don't know why I used a zombie as an example.

Katie: Well that's certainly an important point, and one we focus on here at G-A-Y. But for this particular video, the only suitable response is tot tackle what NOM is dishing. In this case, it is the exaltation of their personal faith beliefs above others' civil freedoms.

As for religious allies: We need every single one of them rising up and taking a stand. So many religious people are gay-supportive, but scared of how they will be received within faith communities. And how could they not be? The religious right has cut such a large presence over the past three decades.

But now does seem like the time for a new sort of faithful majority to change the tone.
